Bioconcepts Milk Thistle 125mg Milk thistle is a thistle of the genus Silybum, a plant from the daisy family. The thistle is native to the Mediterranean regions of Europe, North Africa and the Middle East. Its name comes from from a feature of the leaves, which are notably banded with splashes of white. The seeds of the milk thistle plant contain a flavonoid referred to as silymarin. Silymarin is believed to be responsible for the medical health benefits of the plant. It is made up of 3 constituents: silibinin, silidianin, and silicristin, but Silibinin is by far the most active of all 3 and is largely responsible for the benefits attributed to Milk Thistle. How does Milk Thistle work? The science behind the secret... The constituent Silymarin found within the seeds of the Milk thistle plant is a flavonoids. Flavonoids act as antioxidants within the body which help minimise free radical cellular damage. It is these flavonoids that may help protect the cells of the liver by obstructing the entrance of harmful toxins and then helping remove these toxins from the liver cells - thus enabling the liver to function more effectively. This is how Milk Thistle is able to help increase the production of bile and stimulating protein synthesis in the liver which in turn, enables it to regulate the digestion of fats and help alleviate common stomach problems, such as upset stomach, lack of appetite and indigestion or pains after eating. Is it right for me? If you regularly suffer from stomach upset, upset stomach or indigestion then consider Milk Thistle. Its medicinal properties have been known for over 2000 years, and its antioxidant properties well-documented.
